DECEMBER 29 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallThis morning we are still stunned from the big shifts that happened yesterday. We realize that nothing will ever be the same again. Yet, somehow, if we embrace the change and don’t fight it, we see the value of it. Mars in Aquarius is uniting our hearts and minds (Mercury and Venus) to be able to process and accept uncertainty. This afternoon we could even get optimistic! Today, write about the emotional shifting and mental realizations that occur when characters must accept profound change in their lives.

DECEMBER 28 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallToday the focus continues on active social change, but the atmosphere is less optimistic. Emotions are on edge. Your characters won’t have much patience. Write about that. Women, especially, will have no patience with any type of oppression or restriction. How strong are your heroines and your female protagonists? Today, they may surprise you. Moon in Aries conjuncts Uranus and sparks off the longstanding Pluto/Uranus square. This is a moment of focused societal change that could take any form, but will be revolutionary. Write about big shifts in your fictional or non-fictional worlds today.

DECEMBER 27 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallWarm up to the romance today and watch it sizzle. Electric love scenes are the order of the day. Write the type of love scenes where arguments turn into steamy embraces . . . at least until noon. Then the energy shifts and your characters get out of bed and become politically active. Idealism combines with practical action this afternoon. Later, you could be writing about big social movements or political shifts.

DECEMBER 26 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallIt’s a dreamy morning with Moon in Pisces conjunct Neptune, but we can still get some writing done. The stellium in Capricorn allows us to dream practical dreams and make them real. Fantasy writers have a great day going on long journeys in their heads. Mercury biquintile Jupiter in Leo spells dramatic quests and heroic deeds. The only problem will be staying within your plot outline as your characters have minds of their own. Today, don’t constrain them. Let your adventurers go free, and see where they lead you. You could write on into the wee hours tonight.

DECEMBER 25 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallWith the Moon in Aquarius opposite Jupiter in Leo this morning, our emotions could be on edge and big egos could clash. The best remedies are humor and taking a broader view. Anyone writing sarcastic, biting humor about humanity’s foibles would be right on target today. Old traditions could be skewered and hypocritical attitudes could be exposed. The potential for intergenerational conflict is high tonight. You’d be better off writing about it rather than participating in it.

DECEMBER 24 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallThere are wild, revolutionary urges and emotions, but they are being held back by practical, down-to-earth concerns. You may want to go it alone, but you are forced to deal with others, and the collective. This feels restrictive to your writing in the morning, but after lunch, there’s a change of heart. You realize that paying attention to the concerns of others can actually help your writing. Instead of raging against interruptions today, look to see what morsels of information or inspiration you can glean from your interactions with others. Maybe a conversation you overhear will give you the exact tone for characters in your novel. Or maybe a discussion with your brother-in-law will give you new ideas for your article. Watch out for conflicts between commitment and freedom tonight.

DECEMBER 23 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallThere’s an urge to write about our more unusual and forward-thinking ideas today. With Sun trine Lilith in Virgo, these could be new ideas about health and healthcare systems. Healing methods that may have seemed too unorthodox may come to light now. Mars trine North Node in Libra and Uranus semisextile Chiron spells music therapy. Journalists may want to write articles about treating certain conditions with sound therapy or music therapy. As the Moon moves into Aquarius and sextiles Saturn (now in Sagittarius), the focus is on breaking away from old ways of looking at emotional health. Fiction writers may want to bring music or other new emotional healing methods into their stories.

DECEMBER 22 ~ Writing With The Stars ~ daily astrology for writers

moonclouds_smallWhile the Sun and Moon move into Capricorn, we want to work, yet don’t seem to be able to make much progress. Saturn is still holding us back in Scorpio for another day before it sets us free in Sagittarius. The best you can do today is to remain committed to your project, and know that this strain is just temporary. Try to feel how your writing will affect others, and gain strength from knowing that you’ve been doing the best you can. The waters have broken, and we’re in the birth canal. It’s a little tough going today, but by noon tomorrow, it will be like a brand new life!
